House of Lords Inquiry into Soft Power

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / House of Lords Inquiry into Soft Power
Short and Sweet note to the Clerk

As a result of the failure to agree policy on Syria by both the UK Govt and its counterpart in America, hard power has failed as a foreign policy objective.

We have some brilliant global soft power players - the British Council, BBC World Service, our great national museums and galleries and four or five world class universities.

There is one area where there is a need for UKplc to take a bold step and we have an incredible legacy in the area including Alan Turing, Tim Berners-Lee and Sir Jony Ive.

We need the UK Govt to take the lead in creating a single body for the Internet which puts the citizen at its heart. We do not want a Russia or a China or even an America to step up to the plate and do this first. We are a trusted source in this area and I would urge the committee to make this one of its recommendations.
